KBS Corporate Completes Sale of Gemini Parking Solutions London Limited
Gemini Parking London Limited is an independent provider of car parking solutions for businesses and private clients located across the UK. Since the company’s inception in 2012, Gemini Parking Solutions London Limited has experienced a sustained period of growth, gaining a steady stream of new customs from several well-established companies and organisations, and becoming ISO 9001 and SafeContractor accredited.
Ryan Jackson, Justine Smith and JKO Property Investments, the shareholders of Gemini Parking Solutions London Limited, instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business to enable them to pursue unrelated business interests.
The opportunity proved highly popular, producing 83 interested parties, and two competing offers. The final offer came from APCOA Parking, Europe’s longest-established parking management company which operates from its head offices in Stuttgart, Germany. The acquisition will enable APCOA’s geographic footprint, which mirrors the company’s acquisition of Dublin-based Nationwide Controlled Parking Services in 2019.
APCOA’s Regional Managing Director UK&I, Kim Challis, commented: “Gemini Parking Solutions is an award-winning business in this sector and will be a great fit with APCOA – we look forward to welcoming our new colleagues.
APCOA and Gemini have both actively supported improvements targeted by the new Parking Code and we will continue to strengthen robust policies and procedures to ensure all car park users are treated fairly, with respect and consideration.
We’re also excited to develop more innovative solutions in this area and to maximise opportunities in agreement with our clients, through the provision of our Urban Hub strategy where we will deliver via a range of community-focused products and services to create more sustainable urban life.”
Nathan Leah, Associate Director at KBS Corporate, advised Gemini Parking Solutions London Limited and commented: “I am delighted to have supported the exiting shareholders through their transaction with APCOA. Gemini commanded strong interest throughout our time on the market, but APCOA was by far the most credible, genuine, and serious buyer which we engaged with. I am delighted for the shareholders and wish APCOA all the best going forward, as they continue to grow and expand their already strong UK operations.”
Post completion all staff will be retained.
